Brass Band Qualify for National Finals

On Saturday 8th March, the University of Warwick Brass Band competed in the Midland Area Third Section Championships, and achieved a very impressive 3rd place playing Paul Loveatt-Cooper’s “The Dark Side of the Moon”. This means the band will be travelling to Harrogate in September for the National Finals.

This is the first time in 8 years that the band has qualified for the finals, and the band will be proud to represent the University at one of the World’s premier brass band contests.

The University of Warwick band are the highest ranked contesting student band in the country, and regularly perform outstanding concerts under the musical direction of former Fine Arts Brass trombonist Simon Hogg. The band recently performed in the prestigious Butterworth Hall at Warwick Arts Centre with World renowned tuba soloist Steve Sykes.

After a break for Easter, the band will be taking part in the annual Whit Friday march contest, as well as performing a variety of concerts at the University and in the local area.
